The Motto of The School
The Motto of the University in Latin is “Sola Virtus Nobilitat” translated into English as “Virtues Ennoble” in its short form, or in its long form as “Only Virtues May Make One Noble”. The Motto itself reflects the over reaching philosophical position of the University that each individual whether they be Professors, Students or Administrators must continually strive for the betterment of the person, continually improving the character through intellectual, physical and spiritual pursuit. The Motto also speaks to the need for each person to remain focused on the betterment of their own character in order to bring about the improvement of society and the community in general. Monarch Business School Switzerland believes that a better world may be obtained for all through an enlightened approach to business and commerce where the character of the individual remains the driving force.
